I woke up yesterday and decided to make it an 80% raw food day. Kind of like a mini-cleanse. After a bit of poking around on the internet, I found some sites that actually had one-day cleanses such as Wicked Good Travel and Kimberly Snyder. I didn't follow these completely, but still managed 80% raw food for the day.
The day started with my usual latte which has 1 cup of 1% milk. Then I had 16 oz of kombucha tea followed by my green smoothie. BTW, if anyone needs a kombucha scoby, let me know. Mine is huge and needs to be separated.
Breakfast Green Smoothie
1 cup water
1 very ripe banana
2 T. flax seeds
a few dashes of cinnamon
1 medjool date
1 cup chopped kale
Snack was an apple and 2 big naturally fermented dill pickles.
For dinner I made a salad with one big cucumber, one big tomato, 1/4 avocado, chopped basil, balsamic vinegar and sea salt. It was good, but I should have used 1/2 an avocado instead. I got hungry pretty quickly. So, I had some raw pumpkin seeds and air popped popcorn.
I entered all of this in my Lose It ap and this is the nutritional breakdown of my day.
Fat 22.6 g (17%)
Carbs 217.3 (72%)
Fiber 41.3 g
Protein 34.8 g (11%)
I was surprised how much protein there was in addition to the 8 g from the milk.
I felt pretty good all day and woke up with energy ready to tackle the day today. Sleeping in an extra couple hours didn't hurt either.
I'm seriously considering going 80% raw for the rest of the month. It would be a good way to super charge my system as we get ready for a new school year. I'll keep you posted.
